JJNP Resources Limited was present at the recently concluded Small-scale Women Organisation in Nigeria, SOWFON Regional forum held in Jos, Plateau state on the 26th of May, 2016.

SWOFON is supported by Action Aid Nigeria. It is a coalition of smallholder women farmer groups across Nigeria working together to promote women-friendly agricultural policies and women’s Access to land.

JJNP Resources Limited through its agro-allied division featured at the event to introduce the treadle irrigation technology, The MoneyMaker, to the SWOFON representatives in attendance at the regional forum.  The representatives were from Kogi, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau and Benue states.

The MoneyMaker Pump is an easy-to-use, no fuel, no grease, water-only irrigation pump adaptable for smallholder production. It has the capacity to water 1 acre of land in 1 hour.  The women representatives were impressed by the technology and praised the invention, noting that it would indeed help them make more money as they can conveniently keep on producing their crops even in the dry season.
